Luke Adam was once one of the Sabres most highly touted prospect at the center position. He began the season with Buffalo in 2011-2012 and played in 52 games while recording 20 points. He has played in 75 career NHL games and recorded 18 goals and 38 points. His deal will be worth $735,000 in the NHL next season or $65,000 in the AHL.
Matt Hackett was a key piece in the Jason Pominville deal with Minnesota. If/when Ryan Miller is traded, Hackett will become the defacto backup in Buffalo behind Jhonas Enroth. In 13 NHL games Hackett has a save percentage of .913 and a goals against average of 2.64. His pact is worth $715,000 with the big club or $65,000 on the farm.
